A Synaesthesia Christmas

"No matter who you're buying for this holiday season — Secret Santa, work colleague, book club, family, children, host, neighbour, 'friend of a friend' — books truly are the gifts that keep on giving. [...] Christine Pountney — Sweet Jesus (McClelland & Stewart) — Skyped in with her Lit Wish List: 12 Books That Tell the Truth, and they don't lie! There's sure to be something on this list for the truth-seekers in your life, from current titles to some classics you may already own but might now read again once you've heard Christine's pitches. I particularly love how she talks about remembering the experience of reading a book through her senses, rather than intellect. It's one of the reasons she believes reading is a visual medium, something that inspires us to recall pieces of story as if something we once tasted."
— Julie Wilson, 49th Shelf
